Simple Recipe for Learning How to Bake Chicken

How To Bake ChickenFor the recipe I will share, you will need some chicken breasts, three garlic cloves, two teaspoons of rosemary, olive oil, salt, and pepper. If you want to add some ingredients, it is perfectly fine. Baked garlic chicken is the best experimental dish when it comes to baking chicken.

 

How to Bake Chicken: Seasoning

To start, you will need to season your chicken’s breasts first. Chop the three garlic cloves that you have into very small pieces. After that, sprinkle the chopped garlic, rosemary, pepper, and salt onto the chicken breasts.

Take note that when you are going to bake chicken, you must always wash your hands first. You need to do that most especially if you will be the one who will prepare the chicken breasts. In addition, you must make sure that your countertops are clean whenever you bake.

 

Baking the Fowl

How To Bake ChickenIdeally, you can bake at least three to five pieces of chicken breasts for this recipe. You have the option to do this first before heating the oven to make sure that the aroma of the spices you sprinkled on the chicken will stick to it.

On a side note, you can preheat your oven to 350 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. That temperature is enough to cook evenly the breast parts that you have within 30 to 35 minutes. Also, always remember to use mittens every time you use your oven.

 

Preparing Yourself

While your oven is heating up, you can start preparing the pan you will use. If you will cook four average sized breasts, it is recommendable to use a 9 by 13-inch pan. Before you put the chicken in the pan, sprinkle some olive oil on it.

Also, do not forget to space the chicken parts that they will cook evenly. In addition, pour small amounts of olive oil on top of the chicken. Doing so will help enhance the aroma of the garlic after it is roasted in the oven.

Aside from the oil you will spread in the pan, you can add some lukewarm water to the pan. That water will help prevent your chicken to stick on to your pan. On the other hand, it also prevents your chicken to be burned due to pan dryness.

After thirty minutes in the oven, your fowl should be cooked. If you want to make sure that it is well done, you can use a thermometer. Alternatively, you can check out your chicken’s rawness by checking some small parts.

The last step is to serve the dish. And once you serve a delicious one, please tell me. I know that I will be very proud to know that one of my readers find this article as very useful.
